Sort of like the Biglaw model - bring in a larger than needed class, weed 'em out, the best (or good enough) remain.


This is true, and this is what helps somewhat to protect against "gaming". Only 15-25% of those who score qualify will ever actually work for Kaplan. You're also observed and reviewed frequently enough that you would truly never be in front of a class for more than a few hours if you were an imposter.

All the other prep companies (Princeton Review included) require a real LSAT score.

We actually called LSAC about taking the test for work, and they said it was okay.
